It Doesn't Count So It Doesn't Matter....Or Something


Oh dear. Pietersen should be hanging his head in shame (and a duck to boot).

The Mumbai President's XI beat England, sorry Nightwatchgirl means thrashed, by 124 runs. Only Patel, Swann and Anderson got in to double figures. That's about as good as it gets.

What's the problem?

The openers failed.

The middle order failed.

The bowlers failed (and some called in sick).

Let's start with the excuses:

1. It's hot.
2. Bowlers were sick.
3. The batsmen aren't used to batting.
4. It's all an elaborate hoax to make the India side think the ODI series will be a walk in the park.

How clever.

6. We weren't playing for ridiculous sums of money.

Ive added you to my blogroll, btw, for you are brilliant.

Leela - that is exactly right.

Brat - it appears that the England cricketers have developed supermodel syndrome and now won't get out of bed until they are paid insane amounts of money.

Nightwatchgirl can't wait fot the catwalk though.
